Dual monitor setup for MacBook Pro with Mac Mini

Apple's MacBook Pro don't have dual video outputs. They have a single mini display port that can be connected to a single display up to 2560x1600 resolution.

On the web you will find various USB based video splitters which can be connected to multiple displays. But you can imagine the latency of sending Video signal over USB. They are not practical.

Diagonal hardwood floor

Diagonal hardwood floor completed

Wow that was one of the most satisfying projects I did. I will be posting more pictures soon.

Key points:
- Start at the longest diagonal of the room.
- Make a perfectly straight line on the diagonal.
- Put splines in the grooves for the diagonal and thus make the pieces doubly tongued.

Note: Lot of accurate cutting in involved. So now would be a good time to invest in a sliding miter saw.
